Three-day Shiv Khori fair to start tomorrow

Jammu, Feb 10 : A three-day fair on the occasion of Maha Shivratri will kick off tomorrow at Shiv Khori, an upcoming pilgrim destination, in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The fair would conclude with 'Vishal Kersari Dangal' -- Indian styled wrestling -- at the foothill town of Ransu, about 110 km North from here.

All necessary arrangements have been made by the district administration of Reasi for smooth conduct of the fair.

Having a Shiv Lingam at about 100 meters away inside a natural cave, the shrine is situated in the lap of Sanger Hills of the Pouni block in Reasi.

Shiv Khori is about 80 km away from world-famous cave shrine of Vaishno Devi at Katra, which is also in Reasi district.

Last year, over 8.65 lakh devotees had visited the cave shrine to pay obeisance.
